Welcome! You have reached the Organic Photonics and Nano-Optics group within the Laboratory of Organic Electronics at Linköping University.
We explore nanooptical and organic photonic phenomena and their use in novel applications, such as new types of energy harvesting and biosensing concepts. We have a specific interest in metal nanostructures that interact strongly with light through plasmonic charge oscillations. Other research interests include nanofabrication, nanofluidics and surface chemistry for sensing applications.
Group leader Magnus P Jonsson was previously a Wenner-Gren Fellow postdoc in Prof. Cees Dekker´s group at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. His PhD studies were performed in Prof. Fredrik Höök's group at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. Since 2015, he is an elected member of the Young Academy of Sweden.
Funding. We acknowledge funding from the Wenner-Gren Foundations, the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, the ÅForsk Foundation, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and the Swedish Government Strategic Research Area in Materials Science on Functional Materials at Linköping University.
We have no job openings, but welcome master students and postdocs with funding to contact us.
